Allegiant adding flights from CVG


Allegiant Air says it will be flying non stop from Cincinnati to Tampa Bay and Myrtle Beach starting May 30th. Fares will start as low as $59 one way. 

In a release, Andrew Levy, president and C-O-O Andrew Levy  said the airline has been operating for less than a month in Cincinnati and the community has already embraced its ultra-low-cost travel offerings.

"We are thrilled to further expand our low-cost air travel product within Cincinnati to include Tampa Bay and Myrtle Beach," said Levy. "We are confident the community will appreciate the convenience of flying nonstop to these new destinations and the value of bundling their air, hotel and car rental reservation together."

More from the release:

Both of the new flights will operate twice weekly until Aug. 12, 2014, flying nonstop from Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) to St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport (PIE) and Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR). Allegiant has added low-cost, convenient air travel from Cincinnati to four different sunny destinations in less than six months, making Cincinnati Allegiant's fastest growing origination city in the company's 15-year history.

"We are thrilled to have Allegiant expand service aggressively at CVG," said Candace McGraw, CVG CEO. "The expanded service is a show of significant support from the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky community.  Our passengers want to have fun in the sun and now they have even more low cost options on Allegiant."  

Allegiant's first took flight from Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport on Feb. 12, 2014, with service to Orlando, and shortly thereafter, celebrated the start of service to Punta Gorda on Feb. 14, 2014.
